gcoover Posted September 10, 2022 Share Posted September 10, 2022 (edited) Just now published - a new tutor for the 30-button C/G Anglo concertina by the amazing virtuoso Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne: Anglo Concertina from Beginner to Master, published by Rollston Press. Cohen teaches how to play different keys, modes, ornamentations, and a variety of styles of accompaniment in the harmonic style. Multiple exercises teach simple tunes in the home keys all the way up to complex baroque arrangements by Westhoff and Telemann. All 72 tunes and exercises are shown with the same simple easy-to-use tablature system with standard musical notation that's used in all the Rollston Press books, and each selection includes a Button Map showing which buttons are required to play the tune. The book is divided into chapters with each chapter based around a different theme or style of concertina playing. Each tune has been assigned an ability level from one to seven. AND.... every tune includes a QR code link to a video of Cohen playing the tune. The list price is 20 GBP, 25 USD, 24 Euros. Available from Cohen and through Amazon, and very likely through other retailers like Red Cow Music in the UK. The Table of Contents is attached, along with a sample page. This is the most thorough and exciting tutor for the Anglo to be published in years. Working through all these tunes will not be easy, but thanks to the expert teaching of Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne it will quickly develop and elevate your playing skills (I know I've learned a lot from it already).
